The disgraced singer has managed to dodge allegations of sexual abuse for years, but after Lifetime aired their six-part docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly, an investigation on his property in Georgia was launched. The family hopes that a charge will be levied against Kelly to keep him from leaving the United States with some of his alleged "sex cult" victims.

He and Jonjelyn Savage, who were featured in the Lifetime series, said their 23-year-old daughter Joycelyn has been brainwashed by R. Kelly, despite several videos she has made where she says she is fine.

The series, which aired earlier this month, looks at the singer's history and allegations that he has sexually abused women and girls.

Meanwhile, new accusations have surfaced, but this time made against R. Kelly's manager. Both Mac and TMZ reported the same statement from a Facebook spokesperson in response to their queries about the pulled site: "The Page violated our Community Standards and has been removed".

On a night he was facing a protest in his hometown of Chicago, singer R. Kelly appeared to be partying at a local club, where he proclaimed he's not concerned with the controversy brewing around him.

While no charges have now been brought in Kelly's other residence of Chicago, Cook County state attorney Kim Foxx held a press conference on Tuesday to encourage any victims to "please come forward". Here's what the young female had to say about her former "teacher" and his series.

"It is our job here at the Cook County State's Attorney's office to investigate claims in the interest of justice and public safety".

Timothy Savage told a police officer on January 3 that Don Russell, whom he identified as Kelly's manager, had texted him saying it would be best for him and his family if the documentary didn't air, according to a Henry County police report.

Foxx said that as a survivor of sexual assault herself, she was "sickened by the allegations".

'I can't go back but I can go forward and continue to support women, men and people of all seuxal identities and of all races who are victims of sexual assault.

A Cook County jury acquitted Kelly of all 14 counts of child pornography in 2008.
